Today, we are pleased to announce new partnerships with four fantastic distribution channels across North America!

For the United States, we welcome back HRP Distributing in Utah to our distribution channel, and say hello to A Main Hobbies and the HobbyTown network of stores, and for Canada we’re also pleased to welcome back Hi-Performance Distributors.

As experienced, hobby product resellers of distinction, all of these companies are familiar with the products, processes and staff of HPI Racing, and we have every faith in their abilities to get our products into the hands of our fans!

These new partners share our belief that the number one priority right now at HPI Racing is achieving stable and consistent spare parts availability for our customers in North America. Owners of HPI Racing RC products have invested in our brand and it is vitally important that we keep our customers bashing, scaling, drifting and getting the absolute best out of their hobby.

With that in mind, we’re happy to say that containers of HPI spare parts have already landed in North America and are working their way through these channels. We are thrilled that hobby stores and customers around the US and Canada will now see an influx of spares support and kits in the coming days! Plus, high profile products like the Venture FJ Cruiser and RS4 Sport 3 Hoonicorn, along with our entire range, are also on the way and will be available from now on.

Alan Cocker, Sales Manager for HPI Racing, said:
"We know that HPI Racing customers across the world want to keep driving their cars and trucks whenever they can, and adding these new partners to our distribution network will help us keep HPI fans in the US and Canada stocked up with parts and our newest kits for many years to come."

Tim Van Ert from HobbyTown said:
"HPI have consistently recognized and promoted the importance of hobby stores within our industry and we are now very proud to be part of the HPI Racing family, and we look forward to building on that enthusiasm through our wide network of HobbyTown franchises across the United States."

Kendall Bennett from A Main Hobbies said:
"HPI has always remained popular with our customers and we are excited to help take on the task of distributing HPI Racing products through our website, our shop and to other top retailers in our network.”

Bill Jeric from HRP said:
"It's great to have HPI back with us once again! We know the future is very bright for our partnership, the demand is certainly there and we’re more than ready to meet the needs of retailers from our two distribution centers".

Dan Schellenberg from Hi-Performance said:
"We're very familiar with the complete line of HPI Racing products and look forward to servicing all of their customers and fans across Canada. Canadians have a great appetite for HPI and we’re excited to fulfil it!

If you own or manage a hobby store in North America, you can contact any of these distributors for HPI parts and kits:


If you’re an HPI RC owner or looking forward to one of our latest kit releases, you can look for kits such as the Venture, the Hoonicorn and the Baja 5R very soon, online or at your local hobby store!

Good Morning,
I can ensure you we are working on new products. However the main focus is to get the factories up and running to the speed we expect, this will enable us to provide a backup of spares of our existing models as well as designing new products.
We can only apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your continued patience.
Kind Regards

Sad to realise that parts are coming from China. Maybe if parts were produced in Europe or the USA, the previous Chinese factories used by HPI would not be producing spare parts at a much lower price and a savage clon would not be available from a New York based agent.
Just a thought from a lighting factory R+D worker...

The Savage is made on the same assembly line as the Exceed Mad Beast is, always has been always will be made in china......
In fact The Mad Beast and Savage share a majority of parts, there are minor differences of course but basically the same rig verbatim......

Good to know this when searching for replacements:rolleyes:
The Savage clon I was refering to is kingmotor tyrant. This one is almost a Savage flux HP (which has been discontinued by HPI).

RE: PARTS

Hello,

We are currently awaiting on a parts shipment from HPI. We are hoping that inventory will be available in early April. Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee any availability date, however we can guarantee that the parts are on the way.

Thank you,
